Phil. 1:20 | Aug 16-20 | Barrie, ON

As never before, the world is living in a time of unprecedented turmoil and crisis. Polarization in the political world, confusion in the religious world, and social injustices are on the rise -- which leaves many hopeless. Questions and doubts swirl in our minds and we ask ourselves, how can we get ready for what's coming, and more importantly, how can we be ready for God's return? We invite you on a journey of learning, exchange, and personal connection with the only one who can provide it: God. This year, in our conference, By Life or by Death, we will glorify Him, and search for answers through workshops, prayer sessions, network activities, ministry, and fellowship.

GYC Canada 2023 is moving outdoors!
Stay tuned for more.
According to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death.
